The Whois XML History API allows developers to gather the history of a domain name's ownership. It has a coverage of 7.0+ billion historical WHOIS records and close to 600 million domains tracked across 2.864+ TLDs. Historical WHOIS data can be useful to identify an attacker's footprints, uncover previous domain owners, and do in-depth research on a domain's past to avoid potential liabilities. It can also be used in marketing to avoid any undesirable connotations when buying a previously-registered domain.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
